Here’s my promise ring! It’s tanzanite. He gave it to me when we’d been together for 3 years, and I wore it for another 4 years until he proposed. I actually wore it during the engagement for a little while, because we didn’t get the e-ring immediately. I always wore it on my left ring finger. Once I got the e-ring, I cleaned it and put it in the box.
We knew we wanted to get married, but the ring was a symbol of our love and committment to each other. He got one too, and we made it his wedding band. 🙂

Yes, and I still wear it sometimes. I can’t even remember exactly but I think I was 20 or 21 when he gave it to me. I personally was not ready to get engaged but it was a symbol of commitment and a “we’re in it for the long haul” type of thing.
It’s a cluster ring, and I remember when he gave it to me he said he would buy me a heart shaped diamond one day. Now we are married and he has surprised me with the stone of my dreams, so it feels like we’ve come full circle.
I see a lot of people say they don’t get the point of a promise ring, but I think they are so sweet and sentimental. I think they serve a definite purpose. You can absolutely commit yourself to someone but not be in a place or stage in life where you are ready to be full-on engaged.

Honestly, promise rings don’t mean anything to me anymore and I’m glad that my husband never gave me one because I would have had a hard time believing that he was serious about the promise and I probably would have thought that it was all pure nonsense. I didn’t always feel this way, though. An ex-boyfriend gave me a promise ring with the promise to love me and never leave me, and about a week later (after his father abused me and he actually took his father’s side), we broke up and he claimed that he never truly loved me to begin with. That devastated me and it jaded me on the concept of promise rings, but I think that it CAN be a very romantic gesture from guys who are SINCERE about it (unlike my ex) and actually KEEP their promises. I’m really glad it worked out for so many girls here, but other than that, I tend to roll my eyes at promise rings now. It’s awful, I know, but I can’t help the way I feel. 🙁

My promise ring means a lot to me because the promise behind it was that when my FH got the money and we were both on our feet, he would propose. He kept his promise behind it.
